By now you've probably heard the phrase "criminalizing politics" at least once from a right-wing apologist who is interested in justifying the exposure by the Bush Administration of Valerie Plame as a CIA spy. I think this phrase is terrific and I can't stop thinking about it.

However, the reason I dig it is not because I think Prosecutor Fitzgerald is (potentially) unfairly seeking charges against people who have engaged in behavior no worse than what should be expected in Washington.

No, the reason I love it is because it sounds like a slogan for the Republican party as I see them. It's like I asked them a question: "What the hell are you lunatics doing?" A: "Oh, we're just criminalizing politics!"

Hopefully these fools have peaked. We'll see.

I see my campaign to criminalize blog posting has failed.
